so my stripe damsel just layed eggs

i've been wondering why my stripe damsel kept chasing my other fish and now i know..







what do i do? .. i am not an experienced breeder. i've only had my tank up for a yr (exactly a yr, because i got my tank for Christmas). how long does it take for the eggs to hatch? .. should i leave them on the rocks?... do i turn off my powerheads? will the other fish eat them? .. i have a naso tang, long nose butterfly, yellow tang, 3 stripe damsels. how many usually hatch and survive?... i really don't want 100+ stripe damsels but on the other hand i don't want them to get sucked into filters and power heads. if they survive i will probably see if my LFS will take some

I shouldn't bother with this batch,look into how to raise them ready for the next lot.
